Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Shopping Woes

Unlike the other presidential candidates, I have been in a supermarket in my lifetime.  I have been doing my own shopping so I know the horrors of sticker shock first hand.   I have developed carpal tunnel syndrome from clipping so many coupons in an attempt to get everything I want to get in the supermarket.

The excuses for the constant increases in coffee prices are as lame as the excuses for the constant increases in gas prices.  Too much rain in Columbia, not enough rain in Kenya, too cold in Greenland.  I have heard all of the excuses for spikes in coffee prices and frankly, I am sick of them.

While there are a ton of excuses for the spikes in coffee prices, I haven’t heard any for the spikes in the prices for pastas.  We don’t get our pasta from Columbia or Kenya, so weather isn’t a factor.  it has long since been discovered that spaghetti doesn’t grow on trees.  The price of pasta has doubled over the last four years and I demand to know why!  It seems the stuff I buy the most of has risen more than stuff I avoid like the Plague.

I don’t have all of the answers to the food prices, but I do have one answer that will lower prices for some foods.  We need to stop paying farmers not to grow food.  The more food, the cheaper.  We also have to quit exporting food only to import some of the same food at a higher price.

You can vote for a candidate who can’t tell the difference between a shopping cart and a dolly or you can vote for someone who has walked in your shoes.  I have walked in your shoes and will return them by the end of the week.

    • The spaghetti got on the tree the same way toilet paper gets on my trees every Gate Night.

  2. Amen. I can think of quite a few other things we should not be exporting to other countries only to import it from others. Lunacy. I wish I was in a field where someone would pay me NOT to do my job. Good work if you can get it!

    • Oil is another thing we export and import. What’s with these people?

      • Mathphobia. They are completely escared of real numbers.

  3. Walmart brags when they lower some prices, but they don’t say jack when they hike up the prices on the things you need.

    • Wal-Mart is where I used to buy my pasta when it was $.50 for a 1 lb. box. It’s now $1.08 and is less expensive everywhere else.

  4. […] this cute little piece on why I would be a better candidate than any corporate cartoon character.  The high prices at supermarkets seemed to have affected me more than other […]
